You can volunteer in libraries as part of your Duke of Edinburgh award, for your school work experience programme, or just off your own bat. Come and help us with general library activities like shelving, help at children’s clubs, or support our reading challenges.
See the young adult events listings in the What’s On section.
As you’d expect, we’ve got a lot of books. Why not head over to our catalogue to browse the young adult books, or have a look at our ebook collection if you want to download straight to your device with no chance of getting a fine!
Our Shelf Help book collection offers information and advice on topics like anxiety, depression, eating disorders, bullying and exam pressure. The books are free to borrow from a range of branches.
Websites we pay for so you don’t have to
Some of the most useful websites are behind a paywall, but they’re free with a library card. Through our online resources page you can get free access to Encyclopaedia Britannica, Driving Theory Test practice, the Oxford English Dictionary and more.
We know it’s boring, but don’t forget that not everyone on the internet is nice. Find out more about looking after yourself online.
